Ford's Secret Crush...Data

Posted Image

Ford has a secret and they don't want to just rollover and make it public. On Thursday, a judge will deicde whether or not to make interal documents between Ford and Volvo concerning "roof crush" data public. The data shows that Volvo engineers determined roof strength is key for passenger safety in rollover accidents. Ford guys disagreed. You now can imagine just why Ford wants this data to stay well semi-buried.

My prediction: You bet your ass this is going public.

'Roof crush' data may go public @ The Detroit News
